Sascha, this is awesome.  Thanks for working on this.  I will play with it
and give you some feedback soon.  Any chance you will be willing to donate
it to Apache Flex so that we can have the community work on it and make it

When I built an FXG to SVG converter (reverse of what you have done here),
I built an AIR app and called the XSLT function from the embedded browser.
Webkit comes with an XSLT converter, so it should be pretty straightforward
to make this tool cross-platform when used with AIR.

Any thoughts on creating an plugin/extension for Illustrator CC?  It would
be a great feature to have this integrated into the workflow.
